Looking for the best build for the Soulfist in Lost Ark? Here’s a rundown of all the skills you’ll need to pummel Arkesia’s foes in PvP and PvE.

While some of Lost Ark‘s classes build upon the traditional Mage, Warrior, and Assassin, others transform these base specializations into something truly unique.

One of these is the Soulfist, a Martial Artist that bends magic and raw hand-to-hand pummel power to her whim. Capable of taking fights both upfront and from afar, she’s the game‘s blend of ranged and melee DPS.

Sound like your kind of fighter? Here are the best builds for Lost Ark’s Soulfist in both a PvP and PvE setting.

The Soulfist’s beauty is matched by her firepower.

Scrapper, Soulfist, Striker, or Wardancer?

Lost Ark’s Martial Artist umbrella is divided into four classes, each of whom has specific traits that add a unique flavor to their playstyle.

While the Striker and Wardancer both rely on the more conventional Monk mechanics of other games, the Scrapper makes use of a heavy gauntlet that relies on balancing your stamina and shock Identity gauge. While she hits hard and can remain in the fight longer, catching that balance isn’t always easy.

This is why, if you’re looking to still play the Martial Artist you know and love but want something different, we recommend the Soulfist.

Her raw damage and ability to retreat in a pinch whilst still doing damage is a great safety net, and her mix of ranged DPS and melee abilities offer unique combat chains and fast-paced combat.
